Family Weekend Alternatives

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Hurricane Sandy.  For those who are able to travel to Allentown for Family Weekend, we look forward to your arrival.  For those families that are unable to attend Family Weekend this weekend, we invite you to consider coming for a different weekend this semester.  The entire campus calendar is here, but we have compiled a sampling of events for three alternative weekends and we certainly invite you to visit campus whenever possible

"Moving Stories" features original choreography by the department's upperclass dance majors, in a variety of genres and styles. This is dance as storytelling, narration in human form, addressing themes as broad-ranging as the students own diverse backgrounds. Witness the creations of talented young choreographers from one of the top collegiate dance programs in the country.

It's 1978 Los Angeles, and the Riley family is trying hard to hang on-to their hopes and to each other-in the face of serious dysfunction. Jack, the father, is a brilliant but damaged former war photographer-turned-reluctant paparazzi who never really came back from Vietnam. Jack, his ex-wife and children are spinning away from each other on their own paths of self-awareness (and avoidance). Presented here for the first time anywhere, "The Bourgeois Pig" explores the power of image-on the page and in the public eye. Muhlenberg is proud to partner with Ms. Mullins, an award-winning playwright and 2012 Guggenheim Fellow in developing this exciting new play. For mature audiences.
